Importing beneficiaries in batch is a convenient feature when changing from a bank to another. Qonto allows importing up to 400 beneficiaries at the same time.

How does it work?

  1. Download the following empty CSV file: qonto_import_beneficiaries_empty.csv

  2. Fill the CSV file with your beneficiaries, using Microsoft Excel or any other spreadsheet editor (Do not modify the first row)

  3. Drag and drop your file into Qonto's beneficiary upload page: Qonto > Transfers > New Single Transfer > Upload beneficiaries (CSV)

  4. On the confirmation page, check that the data you imported is correct, and validate

⚠️ I get an error when uploading my file, what should I do ?

Your file has to include the 3 columns below, separated by a semicolon (;). If it doesn't, you will get an error.

(Please note that the file is in English, so it is not possible to modify or translate the column titles)

  • NAME

  • IBAN



If it is correct, your file should like one of those two examples, don't forget to export into CSV type:

☝️ depending on the spreadsheet editor you have, you will have to fill either the 3 datas in every in 3 different columns either fill the 3 datas in one column separated by a semicolon (;). (see examples)

Regarding the values, only the following columns have to be filled in NAME, IBAN. The value for "EMAIL" can remain blank, it is optional.

IBAN data must comply with the right format. In case of error, the confirmation screen will highlight beneficiaries for whom the parameter is wrong, so you get a chance to fix them.

As soon as the information will be modified, you will be able to validate the export of your beneficiary list.

NB: it's not possible for now to put in the files non-sepa accounts.
